    Description

    To Catch a Thief (Paramount, 1955). Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14"). Following their collaboration in "Rear Window," Alfred Hitchcock again cast Grace Kelly to satisfy his infamous infatuation with blonds. Among the wealthy vacationers on the French Riviera, she seduces suspected cat burglar Cary Grant, who's trying to prove his innocence. These lobby cards highlight the most memorable movie scenes. The printing makes artful use of cinematographer Robert Burks' Oscar-winning photography, with the dominance of pastel colors reflecting the aesthetics of Southern France. One card has tape staining on its top and bottom border, and pinholes appear in the corners of half of the cards. In a reissue of these original cards, the NSS placed a red stamp in the bottom right-hand corner on two of the cards, infringing only slightly on the artwork. One of those cards has a pinhole there as well, but otherwise the images remain vivid and unmarred. Very Fine.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
